Up Strawberry Hill in the village-y town of Newent, Gloucestershire is the award-winning Authentic Bread Company, a place where bread is made like it should be: with good-quality organic flour, yeast, salt and water.
"We strive to provide products that are both organic and of high quality, and all are suitable for vegetarians," says Authentic's founder Alan Davis. “For us, taste rather than cost is paramount."
Wheat flour* (wheat flour*, calcium carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamin), water, sunflower oil*, yeast, sea salt.
* = produced to organic standards. For allergens, including cereals containing gluten, please see ingredients in bold. May contain traces of nuts.
All bread contains complex carbohydrates, as well as B vitamins, and zinc. Although white bread contains less fibre than wholemeal bread, it still has a high fibre content, which assists healthy digestion and helps stabilise blood sugar levels. Our white bread contains considerably more fibre than processed white breads.
Best stored in bread bins made out of wood or unglazed clay as metal and plastic prevent the bread from 'breathing' and encourage the growth of mould. Cotton bags or even paper bags are good provided they are stored in a cool dry place. Do not store bread in the refrigerator as this actually encourages the aging process. Our bread freezes well, but it is only worth doing if you want to store it for more than 5 days.
